digitalmars.D - D-Programming-Language/tools licenses

I have started an initiative to improve D packaging scheme and 
got an agreement with dmd package maintainer in Linux to separate 
tools (primarily rdmd, but I see no reason to not include others) 
into separate compiler-agnostic package. That will greatly 
simplify further simultaneous deployment of multiple D compilers.

One issue I have noticed though is that some sources there does 
not have license set and, obviously, official repository 
maintainers won't accept anything like that.

It would have helped if authors of related tools added any 
typical open-source license to them. So far I can see catdoc, 
detab, dman, findtags, told - so it is Walter with tiny bit of 
Andrei :)

Thanks!

P.S. Possible enhancement proposal is to add default license all 
sources in /tools are subject to unless stated otherwise, should 
help long term maintenance.

 Also, is rdmd license custom one as it looks or some unknown to me but
 existing? Does not look like BSD or MIT or Boost. It is very permissive
 so no issues here, but I am quite curious.

Boost should be it. I must have forgotten to add the license to the file. Andrei

These should all be boost licensed.
